"Luxury and Hope" is reminicent of early Peter Gabriel with modern laptop backing, which is a good thing. "Being Away From Fame" on the other hand just doesn't work for me. I like the lyrics but the delivery sounds too much like Ben Gibbard and the music feels like it's missing a few layers, even when it gets bigger and adds more elements. The track sounds like a demo of a song that'll be pretty good but isn't there yet. As for "It's Always Raining in Dublin," nothing about the track grabs me. It just feels like filler delaying the stronger songs.
This is a nice EP and it's made me want to hunt down more vitaminsforyou, but those two tracks are the ones that are going to get dropped on mixtapes, sent to friends and put on repeat. Those are the ones that blow me away.
